I have the Arrive and I think it doesn't.
But everyday I begin to think that the NoDo on the Arrive is actually FoDo. The build number is 7389 instead of 7390.
Wasn't NoDo supposed to bring limited 3rd party multitasking? For example, I can't use Slacker or Last.FM while web browsing because the application quits.
And also, they did not change the camera settings so that they stick, but I don't think they are going to change that until Mango.

NoDo is 7389; 7390 has no known changes but 7389 IS the "final" build of NoDo, whatever that means (there are no real final builds of the OS).
3rd party multi-tasking isn't till 'Mango' in the fall
No separate levels for ringer/media, but there's an app for that
Sounds like NoDo is some sort of contraction of "Does Nothing". The only visible "feature" I know about is cut-and-paste.
I read somewhere (so, grain of salt) that the non-sticking camera settings was a "feature".

I'm not too fussed about the camera, I mean it's not the best, which is why if I want to capture photos I use my camera that has 2x+ the MP and resolution/quality. Smart phones are perfect for the odd "spur-of-the-moment" capturing, but beyond that why not just use a camera?
It always reminds me of the Nokia N8 marketing campaign at the moment with their entire advertisements boasting about the camera. It's like "OUR OS IS CRAP, THE DEVICE IS HORRID, BUT THE CAMERA IS GREAT!", so if I have a camera then the phone is useless? I see. If it were up to me I'd have 0.3 MP cameras on smart phones.

"Improved user experience" is exactly what the Windows Phone team had in mind. Naturally, focusing on that first would be a priority. I would rather have a device that consistantly does what it is supposed to do, than fulfill every possible mobile device dream every once in a while.
Stability over Features.

I have a question. Does it now "backup " the phone after a sync. I want to do this so I can finally grab a SD card and install it in my focus. Zune Pass has ate up 6G faster than I would have imagined.Goodbye Dooley! You will NOT be missed!:@
Bring back the WeeeeeBeeeeaaarrrr

To all you AT&T owners... Did y'all see the updated "where's my phone update?" update page? Maybe not the best of times for release but at least its something...[/QUOTE]
it says testing should be done early april, then it has to schedule for around 10 days.. So im glad i got the update already, cause noone has a clue when the release will be with the way its been going.

edit: sorry saw the twitter part of the question. In rowi, birdsong and twitt you can't copy directly from a tweet, but if you retweet, which brings up a text box, you can from there. Another interesting observation. I can copy from IE, but not from surfcube or 7 tab browser pro...
